Hi everyone! My name is Ronnie, and I'm a graduate student in Neuroscience at Emory. I graduated from Brown University in 2015 with a B.S. in Neuroscience as well, and I'm excited to be one of your TAs this semester. This is my first semester TAing at Emory, but I've TAed introductory biology and introductory neuroscience at Brown when I was an undergraduate. The introductory biology course at Brown uses the same textbook as this course, so I feel somewhat prepared, but please forgive me if there are gaps in my knowledge, as every instructor emphasizes different topics. If you want to see what my former students think of me, CLICK HERE.
I will be leading sessions with Ana Dobrita, an undergraduate TA, on Fridays 1:30-3:00 pm at 1462 Clifton Road Room 308. The first session will start February 2nd.
Since I'm a graduate student, my responsibilities are a bit different, so my sessions will not be your typical Biomentor sessions. Instead, we will go over quizzes, class activities, and difficult concepts. Ana and I are also open to any questions that may arise during the session. Our session is the only one in which we can review quizzes.
PLEASE WATCH THIS BEFORE COMING TO SECTION: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOfeW9qsNV8 I suffer from neurological disabilities called Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which cause me to make involuntary noises, body movements, and to say socially inappropriate words that I do not mean. I apologize sincerely in advance if my tics make you feel uncomfortable, but I hope you will understand that they're not voluntary. I'm very open to discussion, so feel free to contact me or Dr. Abreu if you have questions or concerns. My contact information is at the bottom of this page.
FEEDBACK IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED! Here's a link to a Google Form in which you can anonymously (or not) submit feedback for me at any point during the semester: goo.gl/forms/0wOnTEH0gbVnPat82. Please be as constructive as possible, and try your best not to be mean, simply because that doesn't tell us how to improve. Your feedback can be as simple as "Write larger." All constructive feedback is welcomed.
